1 O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you;
my whole body longs for you
in this parched and weary land
where there is no water. — Psalm 63:1
Do we really believe that Jesus is available all the time? Do we really believe that He wants the absolute best for us all the time? Do we really believe that He is interested in our present welfare? Or do we believe that He is only interested in our eternity? Do we really believe that He loves us so much that He is interceding for us right now? Do we really believe that the King of Kings is praying for us this very moment? Do we really believe that “if He gave us His Son, He will freely give us ALL things? Do we really believe “that all things are possible to him who believes”? Do we really believe that we need to “hide God’s Word in our heart”? Do we really believe that God’s Holy Spirit is a person and can be grieved? Do we really believe that Jesus is God? Do we really believe that God’s Holy Spirit is God? Do we really believe that God’s Holy Spirit searches our hearts and prays for us? Do we really believe that God’s Spirit knows our hearts and the heart of God and that He is able to communicate our deepest desires to God and put God’s answers in our heart? Does our lifestyle and daily walk reflect that we really believe that the Bible is the inerrant, infallible, immutable word of God? Do we constantly lean on Jesus or is He just our safety net? Is He our constant friend or is He our EMT? Is He first in our lives or just mixed in somewhere down the list? Is a day without spending time with Him and in His word dark and gloomy? Does our soul hunger and thirst after Him and His word just as much as our body hungers and thirsts after food and drink?
